Welcome to Little Jesters

Little Jesters is the on site preschool which offers a safe, secure and welcoming learning environment. Our preschool provides care for children aged 2 years 9 months to 4 years old. We are very much part of the wider school, with our own building set into the heart of the playground. We are lucky enough to benefit from the wonderful resources that surround us, including the large playing field, school library bus, outdoor swimming pool and mature woods.

Our staff are also very much part of the school team and work closely with the Reception teacher and other professionals to provide a high quality setting that meets the needs of all children and their families. Our aim is that the children in Little Jesters transfer into school with confidence and excitement about the next stage of their learning journey.

The inside learning environment is bright and welcoming with the outside area also providing a range of learning opportunities that are engaging and accessible for all children at any time during the day. Our wider school facilities promote high standards whilst being a place where children can be safe and secure as they develop their independence.

Little Jesters families will benefit from having access to the excellent wrap-around care currently provided in school. The school's onsite kitchen provides nutritious hot meals each lunch time, which can be purchased for Little Jesters children.
